Project Description:

Construction continues on various projects in the Central Terminal Area (CTA) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) as part of an ongoing $4.1-billion airport modernization program. The Curbside Appeal Project continues with construction of modern glass canopies in front of TBIT and preparation for installation of dramatic LED (lighting-emitting diode) light bands and art-deco light poles, similar to the iconic LAX Gateway pylons. The new lights and canopies will extend through the entire length of the horseshoe-shaped curb between Terminals 1 and 7. The LED lights are estimated to last 10 years for significant cost savings.
